I have a question for you writers out there – how does the weather reflect in your writing?
For example if you’re writing during the winter months do you find your including holiday or Christmas scenes in your book? Or perhaps you’re writing during the summer months, do you find that you have camping in beach outings including your book?
Does the day’s weather affect how you write; if it’s rainy and cloudy outside do you find that you dragging? You’re writing the things might have more of a gloomy feel to it as you’re putting the words down on the paper. Or, perhaps it’s a beautiful, sunny day and the words just popped onto the page and your characters are doing everything they are supposed to. The words are going smoothly and the pages are filling up.
So how does the weather mirror you not as person, but as a writer? Do you find that you’re more productive on certain types of weather days? Some people are better in the morning or the afternoon, but what about the weather – how does that effect your writing habits – think about it.
Does the weather effect you to the point where you actually can’t write on certain types of days? Do you find that you do better with doing promotions and research on those days? Maybe you just put the pen and paper aside and give it all up and wait for the next rainy/sunny day that fits your mood.
We writers are creatures of habit. We don’t like things to get in the way of our writing, but some things we can’t control, and one of them is the weather.
So, do you work with the weather or do you like the weather work against you?
